Hydraulic Fracturing Does Not Contaminate Drinking Water

Hydraulic fracturing, fracking, or frac'ing, depending on who you talk to, DOES NOT contaminate drinking water.  That was the conclusion from a University of Texas Energy Institute study of the process. The study noted that contamination is usually related to above ground spills or a mishandling of wastewater.

Noteably, the study was not funded by industry dollars.
